The mission of the Chicago Association for Research and Education in Science (CARES) is to improve the health and healthcare of United States Military Veterans through medical research and education.
CARES supports activities at four different VA sites, Edward Hines, Jr. VA Hospital, Captain James A. Lovell Federal Health Care Center, Jesse Brown VA Medical Center,  and William S. Middleton Memorial VA Hospital. 

Please explore this Veteran’s information section of the CARES website.  We’ve included a Resource Link with national and local links to Veteran’s resources, a segment related to volunteering in research, and information on how to identify research being conducted at your local VA.

We also ask you to consider a donation to CARES to support local research and education activities at your VA.
